Two questions really... Will my fiance need an original certified birth certificate for her interview? And are there any stipulations about how old it is? In her instructions she was told that hers couldn't be more than 6 months old. Seems weird, but whatever. Doesn't say anything about mine, but I don't want to assume too much.

If you are the petitioner you should sent along with the 1-129F package to your fiancée the beneficiary, the originals that you did not sent in to the USCIS; birth certificate, divorce certificate, etc. They also need to be dated as close as possible to the interview date.

Good luck,

ccfoo,

A USCIS or Consular Officer can request to see the 'original' of any photocopied document that has been submitted for the case, to verify the photocopy. In the case of a visa interview, that includes documents submitted with the preceding petitions as well as with the visa application.
